Natural England in partnership with Pennine Prospects commissioned this study on behalf of the South Pennines Local Nature Partnership. The South Pennines is the distinctive area of uplands between the conurbations of Greater Manchester, West Yorkshire and Pennine Lancashire. The study analysed data collected between 2009-12 through the Monitor of Engagement with the Natural Environment (MENE) survey in order to better understand the profile of visits taken in the South Pennines and the demographics, levels of visit taking, motivations and barriers amongst people living in the surrounding South Pennines Catchment Area. Results from this study are compared with findings from earlier reports that also use the MENE data to analyse differences in access to the natural environment between social groups within the total adult English population.
